In the most anticipated debut of the season, Tom Brady returned from his ‘Deflategate’ suspension on Sunday to meet the Cleveland Browns. Brady couldn’t have gotten better welcoming party than the Browns, who’ve been one of the worst (and most unfortunate) teams in the league.

Brady kicked things off with an 80-yard drive, capped by a touchdown. And he didn’t’ stop there. Brady threw for 400 yards and 3 TDs, and looked crisp and ready for the season. He looked like he was in midseason form – it’s safe to say his suspension wasn’t spent on the couch.

Brady found his favorite targets in Julian Edeleman and Rob Gronkowski early and often, and also got it to his new targets. It’s bad news for the rest of the league, with Brady back and looking strong. It appears the Patriots won’t be missing a beat this season.
